FINED FOR KILLING DEER
Warwick Alderman, of North Fork Anthonys Creek, was before Squire Smith last Thursday and confessed to killing a deer. His portion was $50 and costs, and the word of the judge that he was getting off light. Alderman lives in a deer country, and he killed himself a fine fat venison last January. Game Protectors Park McNeil and Lete Young got next to the violation, worked the case up, and secured such conclusive evidence that when Alderman was arrested in Marlinton last Thursday, he confessed.
